Cat lovers and Pusheen lovers, which is almost everyone, will love Let's Bake!: A Pusheen Cookbook, by Claire Belton and Susanne Ng. This is a delightful cookbook, with every recipe ending up looking like Pusheen. Although the main recipes are easy to follow, the detail in making the Pusheens is a lot of work and takes a lot of patience. Most are recipes to be saved for a rainy day project. The recipes are reminiscent of something you would find in Japan, and the attention to detail definitely has a Japanese slant.

The book includes step-by-step photographs to help bakers make picture-perfect baked goods. There are mostly sweet treats in the book, including desserts, cookies, cakes, pastries, and tarts, but there are a few savory dishes like Pusheen pizza and Pusheen pancakes. The recipes make small amounts, and it seems that only making a few when it’s quite time consuming to make them that making more wouldn’t take much more time, The book includes templates with different sizes and shapes of Pusheen, so bakers can get their creations exactly right. While the whole point in baking these adorable creations is to make them look like Pusheen, the recipes are good and easy to follow and will make mouthwatering treats whether or not they are decorated like the photos in the cookbook. Many of the recipes are unique and not ones found in most cookbooks.

Let’s Bake!: A Pusheen Cookbook is one for Pusheen aficionados who don’t have any problem spending time to make some of the cutest treats on the planet. Pusheen lovers will want to hone their artist skills to make their treats as cute as the ones in the book. Very fun!
